Please answer if you can.
I have a Slot 1 DFI P2XLX Mobo with a Intel 440lx agp chipset.

I recently purchased a Super Sloket 3 converter and I was wondering what the max P3 I could use effieciently would be.

The specs for the boards BUS frequency are: The External BUS Clock frequency is controlled by a software setting in the "Chipset Features Setup" screen in the BIOS Setup Utility. The current BIOS version supports frequency settings of 60/66/68/75/83MHz.
It has up to a 5x multiplier

Does this limit me to a 400mhz chip or could I upgrade the bios to support a higher BUS frequency?

First of all ,the P3 doesn't use the Super Socket 3 .It uses Socket 370.You could see if DFI has any update for your BIOS.It may help to support higher bus speeds and clock multipliers.As of now ,your mobo can support only 83 Mhz.*5=415 Mhz. Processors.:)

The Super Slocket 3 converts a slot 1 to PPGA/FCPGA Socket 370 ;)
